On all Namco vert games, Pacman, Galaga etc. etc. the bottom of the screen is squashed and there's a weird white line across the bottom of the screen. I've attached pictures of the issue and res. I've tried on a couple of Groovy MAME builds up to 0.196 and face the same issue. ALL other vert games seem to work fine.

That looks odd, as if the monitor was mounted upside down (I've seen that issue many times but it was on the top).

Check if modifying this in mame.ini makes any difference:

monitor custom
crt_range0  15625-15750, 49.50-65.00, 2.000, 4.700, 8.000, 0.192, 0.192, 1.024, 0, 0, 192, 288, 448, 576
Important note: posts reporting GM issues without a log will be IGNORED.
Steps to create a log:
 - From command line, run: groovymame.exe -v romname >romname.txt
 - Attach resulting romname.txt file to your post, instead or pasting it.

This didnt worked for me, so i did a bit of research and end up creating custom inis for all pacman games based on mr do or mikie resolutions and now the y look ok, not quite original but they fill the screen  in a regular way. I also notice that the MK games have the same efect but on the bottom kind of like the problem this guys had http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=119627.0 so i did a custom ini as well but the game doesnt look right so i wonder if there are either custom ninis for mk games or perhaps i can add a mode to mame ini in order to fix them, i wich i could fix pacman games in another way too, thanks for any help.
